The work culture depend on the subset of department you work for. I enjoy my work and is always encouraged to take on new responsibilities and move ahead. I see advancement to people based on the job profile and commitment, not politics.
It is still a family owned company, which has its own pros and cons. There is little risk taken, especially with new research however ideas are motivated to upper management for consideration.
My department, most of the employees are with BI for more than 10 years and not planning to leave.
Amazing benefits, have flexibility to keep a work life balance.
